Breakfast Casserole – Simple, Yummy, and Gluten Free!

4 Nov

I hosted a brunch this week for some lovely ladies and made my favorite breakfast casserole for the occasion.

This perfectly simple recipe is yummy, relatively healthy, and absolutely gluten free!


After a friend shared the recipe with me several years ago, this dish has become my go-to option for brunch gatherings and Christmas morning fare.


–1/2 stick of butter

–1 small sweet onion, chopped

–1 small green pepper, chopped

–2-3 small tomatoes, chopped

–1 – 24 oz. frozen hash browns

–1/2 to 1 lb. cooked turkey sausage

–3 C. of shredded cheese (I use the 4 cheese Mexican Blend)

–12 beaten eggs


–Melt butter in the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish.

–Spread frozen hash browns along bottom of pan.

–Sprinkle veggies over potatoes.

–Salt & pepper to taste.

–Sprinkle meat over potatoes and veggies.

*Note: may refrigerate over night at this point if desired.

Do you see the adorable little hands in this photo? Those belong to my 3 year-old, and he’s becoming quite handy in the kitchen! He crumbled the turkey sausage, spread the potatoes, and cracked the eggs for me – what a doll!

All ingredients before pouring beaten egg mixture over the top. May refrigerate overnight at this point to save morning prep time.

–Pour beaten eggs over all ingredients.

–Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

–Remove from oven to sprinkle cheese on top.

–Bake an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is hot and bubbly.


I hope you enjoy this delicious breakfast around your home soon!
